Eastern Nagaland Women Organization (ENWO) has urged upon the education department to take appropriate and all necessary steps to ensure that the future of thousands of students who recently passed the HSLC examination was not jeopardized owing to shortage of space and teachers at the GHSS Mon including two recently upgraded higher secondary schools at Aboi and Tizit.
Cautioning the education department against inaction, ENWO president N. Menlei Konyak, in a statement viewed with great concern the fate of students from Mon district who were turned away while seeking admission to Class XI at Mon GHSS while even the Wangkhao Government College, the only college in the district could also not admit students to PU classes due to inadequate capacity and shortage of lecturers.
Menlei stated that the upgradation of high schools to higher secondary level proved to be a non starter since no teachers have yet been posted to GHSS Aboi and GHSS Tizit, besides, she said “upgradation in name without essential provisions is unthinkable. This exposes the careless attitude of the authorities concerned”.
She said while a few from the financially privileged could seek admission outside, the situation for the rest was grim and worse since the authorities were unable to solve the crisis.
According to the ENWO president, backwardness was lack of development in the district which the thousands of students turned away from admissions indicated that the state government was “found unprepared to face up to the challenge and the future of the students are kept on the lurch.”
